    Absolutely- I think you've read my mind! That's why I was thinking of this stuff, really, because I was clinically depressed from god knows when til I was 15- I won't tell the long boring story but I worked hard to get over it and work with all my problems with myself. But I've been thinking about it again recently as I haven't been feeling too happy again, and it's made me wonder whether I just have a biochemical or learnt mindset, and the last three years have just been.. I don't know, some kind of lull, while I've been distracted with other stuff.

    God I'm depressing myself.
    i think most peopel this age goes thru a period of depression, i'm one of them. my mood can swing back and forth but certainaly feel better now than before. guess its worse for some people....

    Yeah, you're depressing me too. Yawn. This place really is full of depressives. As is every other internet forum. Surely there must be some sort of link...
    I suppose I needn't speculate why you were bullied.

    More and more the self-made millionaire is coming to light. Branson, Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsey to name a few. I think university students will (in a few cases unduly) lose respect and be perceived as people who spent three years drinking, sleeping and shagging. I hope my degree will not disadvantage me when I'm ready to enter the labour market.
    I am not saying I am like that, I still study hard and think study is more important than clubbig etc, I also think that doing nothing but studying is also very unproductive. I did this for my AVCE, I managed to get the highest grade in my college (which is the UKs biggest) but I was really unahppy for it.

    I don;t think people percieve university students like that, but then I am slightly biased. However from some of the students I know on the internet they hardly seem to any work and spend all the time in clubs and shagging like you say.

    I am sure having a degree won't disadvantage you unless you want to work as a shelf stacker.

    I was bullied at school a lot too, I will delete this by tonight as I don't want some people to read it, but I wear hearing aids, had really bad acne, have dyspraxia (so can't do PE) you can see why I was bullied a lot at school.

    On top this my dad lost his job, we nearly ended up in a council house before it was decided my dad could have early retirement which saved us. During this time I really depressed and had no friends whats so ever (this was 1997) however things are much much better now thank god.

    So I guess environmetal things can change people.

    I was physically bullied by my best friend from 5-7 because I was smaller than him basically, and that messed me up for life.

    You will get over it, I think I have got over mine, it dosn't happen over night, but I found when I dropped out of college to get away from the people I was at school with and started a new college a year later in a totaly different part of Manchester really helped.

    I no longer suffer from depression, I just feel down some times, and there is a big difference.My dad suffered from it too, he is better now.
